Pre-application advice is a non-statutory procedure provided by our planning teams and is available to anyone wishing to carry out development in Aberdeen.
Pre-application advice ensures we can make an initial assessment to share known perspectives and objectives before you make any costly commitments in terms of time, resources and assets. To be productive pre-application advice needs commitment from all parties with the understanding that all our resources are finite.
The need for pre-application advice will not be necessary in every instance and we will take a proportionate approach based upon the nature and scope of the proposal.
